....quote from another post? I hate to appear ignorant (although it is in my job description) but I just haven't figured it out yet.

You need to learn some basic "UBB Code"

Click here to get some pointers, it is very easy.

Thanks for that information. I hang out on another bbs as well and have marveled at how some techies are able to add so much to their posts by adding these features, both here and there.

Am I the only guy here that doesn't know how to ........quote from another post?


The ONLY one...nah, that involves a lotta people [Linked Image]

Just use;
quote ~to start

/quote ~to end

BOTH must be encased by brackets.
What you type would look something like this:
[bracket] WFO is not an ignoramus[/bracket]

Replace the WORD "bracket" for "quote"...
..and you'll see:
Quote
WFO is not an ignoramus

...when you hit the Submit button.

ECN has a page which explains the UBB codes used in this forum

The product of rotation, excitation and flux produces electricty.

Yeah, I've been searching for the "quote" button", wondering where it was at. It would
be nice if the site designer would add a quote button, since some us are fairly clueless when it comes to UBB protocol.

Having been through quite a few forum upgrades my choice would be 'don't fix what ain't broke'. [Linked Image]
